Ecumenical and interfaith appeal “Pray, Give, Speak Out”

Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops have joined an ecumenical and interfaith appeal concerning the famines in South Sudan and the severe food shortages in Yemen, northeast Nigeria and Somalia. The appeal is to involve a joint fundraising initiative which engages the CCCB, the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace, Aid to the Church in Need Canada, and Canadian Jesuits International. The appeal is entitled Pray, Give, Speak-Out.

The CCCB has contacted and verified that three Catholic aid agencies are willing to help with this effort. Donations from the Catholic faithful or from your diocese/eparchy can be sent electronically to any the following, should you so wish, in order that they may be forwarded to assist emergency relief efforts in the affected regions:

Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace

Aid to the Church in Need Canada

Canadian Jesuits International
